Chili is delicious any time of the year – whether the year's first frost has descended upon your hunting fields, or you're reaching for the last package of ground venison at the bottom of the freezer

Hot and spicy, it is no wonder chili is a favorite recipe for fall and winter, but its peppery flavors also do wonders at hiding “older” meat from last season. You know when ground meat turns from bright red to brown from freezer burn and oxidation? Chili doesn’t care like hamburger does. Chili will welcome any ground meat in hearty embrace, much like you offering a warm bowl of venison chili to those you care about.
